When I have leftover ham in the fridge, I always like to make this soup. Just throw the ingredients in the slow cooker, turn it on and dinner is done.


1 pound dried green split peas, rinsed

1 meaty ham bone, 2 ham hocks or 2 cups diced ham

1 cup sliced baby carrots

1 cup chopped yellow onion

2 stalks celery plus leaves, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 bay leaf

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Salt and pepper to taste

6 cups chicken broth


Layer ingredients in slow cooker in the order given, adding the broth last. Do not stir ingredients. Cover and cook on high 4 to 5 hours or 8 to 10 hours on low until peas are very soft and ham falls off the bone.
